    while I never played the hollow body I really like how my P22 sounds on the piezo. At the store I ran it through and acoustic amp and fooled a few people. They were in another room and when they walked in were surprised I was playing a solid body electric. Frankly for playing live the P2 has a superior knob placement than the hollow body. Not crazy about control plasements on them at all.

    I don't have both either, but like the hollow body enough to have a spare. I thought the first had a nice acoustic flavour without the piezo, but getting one with the piezo gave huge range. I frequently just plug it straight into a pa.

    I have both. I'm not a great acoustic player but both guitars cover the acoustic-electric ground.

    I don't have an an HB2, but I have HB1. This is what a P22 vs a HB1 piezo sounds like. I would expect that an HB2 is brighter.

    Great comparison! It sounds like the HB decays a little more quickly than the P22. Both sound good.

    That could just be that the strings are older. My impression is that the P22 sings more while I hear a little more in the lower mids in the HB.
